Gordons Pond Trail

Gordon’s Mudflat

May, 2018 by vivian.bedoya

Visited in May 2018 & tried to walk from the Ocean Drive trailhead towards Herring Point. This is a nicely planned, well-maintained trail and a lot of cyclists were enjoying it. Unfortunately, the main attraction, Gordon’s Pond, was dry and foul-smelling; more of a caked mudflat than a body of water. After one mile, we turned back because the flies and hot sun made the experience more unpleasant than the smell. We’ll try again next time we’re in Lewes.

Junction & Breakwater Trail

J&B and Gordon's Pond

May, 2018 by dillar

Great Loop.... Started at Gordon's Pond Parking lot just north of Rehobeth. Rode north on Gordon's Pond Loop, connected via the Cape Henlopen trail past the bath house and onto Rt. 9 to Lewes. Connected with the Junction and Breakwater back to Rehobeth.
Good Surfaces all the way.... was initially concerned with traffic on Rt. 9, but we rode thru a neighborhood parallel to the road and came back onto Rt. 9 just before the Ferry terminal. Don't take Rt. 9 into Lewes, go an extra block and take Savannah Road into Lewes. There's a Dairy Queen on the corner and you can see the Lewes beach right there. Signs for connection to Breakwater Trail are visible right after the little drawbridge.
The end of the trail is a little confusing...the sign is outdated, but if you go left on rt. 273 and turn right on Canal Crossing Road (~200yds) to Church street you'll arrive at Rehobeth Ave. to turn left into town..

Barnegat Branch Trail

Too many stop signs

April, 2018 by graphitepaddle

Riding a recumbent trike, starting in Lochiel Park. Rode north to the end (Lacey Rd). Rode to the southern end (Burr St), before returning to Lochiel Park.

Southern section has few crossings, lots of shade, and is further from rt 9. Expect to return, but only because of this section.

Middle section is practically on top of rt. 9. And the constant road & driveway crossing are a big deterrent for returning for more rides.

An outhouse in Lockiel Park, plus another one north one north Country Ln.

North Wildwood Seawall Trail

The Seawall

January, 2018 by rcpat

The is a very unique biking experience, In the fall is the best time to ride here because it is the off season. If anybody is thinking about riding here, check out the photos on this trail page. You will what to do this.
I did my rides over two days in November 2017. The ocean, sea breeze, and beach just fills you with elation. One note, you cannot ride on top of the seawall. However, streets run parallel to the seawall.On the south-side, they have a ground level concrete boardwalk that leads to Wildwood.
Enclosing, to be there in the fall on a beautiful day is very special.

Barnegat Branch Trail

Good commuter trail

December, 2017 by slipsoup

My friend and I rode the trail from Railroad Avenue in Forked River to what we thought was the end of the trail in Barnegat. We thought it was the end because there was a zero marker and it said End. However, we later learned after looking at the map that the trail actually went farther. I guess is was marked as the End because there's a break in the trail there. The distance we rode was about 6.5 miles one way. This trail is best used by commuters or beginner riders. The surface is mostly tight-packed gravel. There are several crossings, most not heavily trafficked streets. The scenery is not much to speak of, as it flanks busy roads most of the time. This makes it good for commuting. The last 2.5 miles we rode were the most scenic, going through a forested area. I wouldn't recommend this trail if you're looking for scenery and want to feel removed from the hustle and bustle.

Cold Spring Bike Path

Safe and pretty walk or ride.

November, 2017 by musicman.aje83

I've walked this trail starting from Historic Cold Spring Village and going south from there. It's nice that the old railroad buildings and signs are still in place. Except for right in front of Historic Cold Spring Village, the trail is shaded pretty well by trees and foliage on both sides of the trail. So, there's not a whole lot to see, but the trail is far away from traffic at the section of the trail. It's a nice little bit of exercise to add to a day at Historic Cold Spring Village.

Ocean City Bike Path

Part of a long bike route

November, 2017 by musicman.aje83

Part of the trail runs along a nature reserve, so there's plenty of nice views. The rest is a fairly protected bike route in a calm section of town. I've done this section as part of a larger bike ride extending from Somers Point across the 9th street bridge and then down Haven Ave. all the way to 56th street and Haven and then back to Somers Point.

Route 52 Bridge Trail

Beautiful views and a safe and pleasant ride

November, 2017 by musicman.aje83

I usually park along Broadway Ave., but you could also park down at Kennedy Park. From Broadway to the trail head is a short, but semi-tricky ride as cars constantly pull in and out of the restaurant and liquor store there. There is a nice sidewalk once you get past the restaurant. From there it's smooth riding. The bridges take a bit of effort and are of course easier to handle if your bike has more gears, but they give you a nice work out. If your going for a longer ride, it might be prudent to walk your bike up the bridges to save energy for later. The tops of the bridges are great places to stop for photos. The path is about 4 people wide, so you need to be careful when speeding down the bridges when there is a lot of foot traffic. The path is separate from the vehicle lane with an about 3 foot high barrier in between the path and vehicle lanes. Bikes can also ride in the vehicle lane, but it is fairly dangerous as the shoulder is small in places. There are a couple fishing piers with parking lots which can serve as places to rest along the way, the Somers point side fish pier has a porta-potti I believe. Further along the path is a Visitor's center which is only open at certain times, but it does have bathroom's when it is open. The upper deck of the center is a great place to stop to take pictures. The bridge into Ocean city is quite steep and you need to mind your speed both coming into the city and when your are headed back towards the Visitor's center. Coming into the city, there is an intersection fairly close to the end of the bridge. Headed back to the visitor's center, there is a tight turn that can surprise you if you are rolling too fast down the bridge. From the Ocean City end, you can continue riding up to the boardwalk. Be aware that OC does not allow you to ride on sidewalks and the roads can be quite dangerous and full of traffic during the summer season. You can also head up to Haven and ride down it, which will eventually connect to another bike path.

Pleasantville to Somers Point Bike Path

Simple flat trail through pretty cities.

November, 2017 by musicman.aje83

I started off at the VFW parking lot in Somers Point and rode down to the former rail bridge over the Black Horse Pike. This is a great trail for cruising and relaxing as well as meeting people. The main downside of this trail is the many cross streets. Local knowledge is useful here to know which streets you can simply stop and then roll on through and which streets you need to keep a very wary eye out for drivers (Central, Tilton, Mill, etc.) . Also, there are a few places where roots have made the path bumpy and places where the trail turns slightly while crossing major roads. Pleasantville can be not so pleasant at times, but it's fine in the daytime. The other neat thing about this trail is that it connects to the 9th street bridge that takes you into Ocean City. There are a couple routes besides the one marked on the map that'll get you to the bridge without having to cross at the major intersection before the bridge.

Monroe Township Bikeway

Nice morning

October, 2017 by teamvolin

This trail is great for a nice run, walk or bike ride. The people on it were very friendly. It was not too crowded. It's a pleasant ride through some woods and some more open areas. It's flat and easy.

Georgetown-Lewes Trail

Great potential

October, 2017 by kshell

This trail is only a little over one mile but it will eventually go the whole way to Georgetown. The part that is completed is paved. I hope this trail is completed as soon possible. It will be great for Sussex County.

Gordons Pond Trail

Great loop with the Junction and Breakwater Trail

October, 2017 by kshell

The Gordon Pond Trail is a great ride. We rode from Rehoboth Beach to Lewes and linked up with the Junction and Breakwater Trail for our return trip to Rehoboth Beach. The total loop it about 18 miles. We have done this ride numerous times and each time it is great experience. Both trails are well maintained.
We know the route but for someone who is not familiar with the route this could cause a problem. The connection between the two trails is not well marked. The bike shops in the area provide maps but markings that link the two trails would be very helpful.
